Hello friends! I hope you're enjoying your summer and making time for a little bit of scrapping. Today, I'm sharing two 12x12 layouts I made with some of my own photos from a quick trip Jack and I took to New York in 2019. We went for business but sneaked in some fun time as well.
For these pages, I used the Bella Blvd Time To Travel Collection (links below). I
love this line … great colors, cute icons, and
simple patterns. Plus, the colors went perfectly with my photos!
Scrapbooking should always be fun - not complicated. So, create layouts that you love and enjoy the creative process. For me, that means straight lines, bright colors, and pages that focus on the photos. These layouts are a great example of that.
I started with white cardstock then added the Freeway paper (blue side) and it's reverse (rainbow stripe) on top. I wanted to create lines with my photos that mimic the cityscape. So, I stacked the three 3.5”x 6" pictures next to each other across the center of the page.
Above the photos, I added a strip from the Borders paper with a fun saying and a few chipboard stickers.
For the second page, I used white paper again and added the red Photo Op print next. Then layered the Freeway stripe (both sides) to match the first page and my 3"x4" photos of the places we visited.
Next - the journaling spot. Since I love balance, I prefer to type and print my thoughts on the computer vs handwriting them. I backed that with the Love This Place cloud paper and added it to the page.
The “B” sides of Bella papers (like the tone-on-tone red and navy prints above) are always great for backgrounds. Love them! To finish off this layout, I added the "Travel Does the Heart Good" card from the Daily Details and some more chipboard stickers. And ... finito!
I hope you're having fun traveling this summer. Don't forget to save those memories and create some magic with this colorful Bella Blvd collection!
